When we last heard from former Bay City Central and Syracuse standout Eric Devendorf, he was having a strong stint in the NBA D-League, averaging 10.3 points per game on 52.7 percent shooting and 44.8 percent from 3-point range last season. Now, Devendorf has parlayed that success into an opportunity to play professionally in the Ukraine. From Mike Waters of the Syracuse Post-Standard:
Christos Lazarou, a representative with Side By Side Sports, confirmed that Devendorf, who played at Syracuse University from 2005 to 2009, has signed with Dnipro Azot, which is a member of Ukraine’s SuperLeague.
Dnipro Azot is located in the Ukrainian city of Dneprodzerzhinsk.
Since leaving Syracuse University after the 2008-09 season, Devendorf has played in the NBA Development League, Turkey, Australia and New Zealand. He split last season with the Idaho Stampede and the Reno Bighorns of the NBDL.
Now Devendorf can continue to build on that claim that he is the best basketball player Bay City has produced.
